Detection of incipient and low current faults in electric distribution systems Conference Paper uri icon


  • Research at Texas A&M in incipient fault detection is reviewed, and the digital and analytical techniques used to discriminate faults from normal system activity are described. The results of staged fault tests are reviewed and detection approaches are presented. The application of these techniques to spaceborne power systems is discussed. It is concluded that the application of these approaches to spaceborne power system fault detection is possible and valuable.
